Decluttering my life

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

I'm looking at my old clothes -- and all I can think of is: what the heck was I thinking????

Many of them are not bad, but they are not terribly professional and they're cheap. Cheap to buy, cheap to wash, cheaply made. I counted 30 shirts and blouses alone -- and these are just my cold weather clothes! Now, I know that there are plenty of people with more, but this is a small closet.

So I've come to a decision. For my final weight -- whatever that ends up being and whenever that ends up happening -- I just want the minimum. Not just one outfit, of course, but not this festival of every sleeve length and every conceivable neckline in a variety of colors. I like color and neckline choices, to be sure, but I'm thinking that it will be better to have fewer pieces but better ones. Things I have to take care of. Things that require a little time and attention.

Then again, I don't exist to enrich my local dry cleaner. :)

I'll find a happy medium I'm sure.

  


All caught up

I've got my fave foods listed, my recipe is off and running (hey, I'm making it tonight ..) and fitness tracking is happening. Hmm, maybe I'll go into message board land ...

  


Not quite at the first goal yet

Monday, February 25, 2008

Okay well then it'll be next week. 331 this morning, right on the dot. No question re why it happened; it was a wacky, off-kilter weekend. There's always next week -- this is a marathon, not a sprint.

  


Almost at first goal

Sunday, February 24, 2008

First goal is 17 lbs. off. Let's see if it happens by tomorrow's checkin.

The little (well, not so little) engine that could.

Took photos of myself today, after having lost just under 15 lbs. with alli (started taking it on 1/19/08). It's happening but dang my face still looks very round.

  15 pounds is great!! Keep up the work - you've got the right attitude! :)

My gut is still round, and I've got 15, maybe 20 pounds left to go...I'd rather that fat in my face. LOL...

It takes time to lose weight, and your face will look thinner in time...just as my "Homer Simpson" gut will. What's that old saying? All good things come to those who wait. :)
